Health starts with a healthy mind, that includes conquering and making Friends with our fear.
Ready, set, uh oh. A not so friendly visitor is back again. Fear finds us all every once in a while, but there is no reason to remain frozen by it. The easiest way to face it head on is to put yourself in its shoes. By uncovering the roots, you can ensure that you nurture the kind of mental garden you covet – with weeds a thing of the past.
Put a name on that which scares you. Identify what’s getting you down – whether it’s a real challenge or a perceived slight. A target is much easier to hit when you know what it looks like.
Stop the self-chatter. For two minutes. Hopefully for ten. When the mind’s worked up it will start firing off negativity on all cylinders. Quiet everything up there. All that radio frequency is getting in the way. After a few minutes of a true mental break…

We all get stuck in ruts and have times when it is hard to motivate ourselves. How do we keep the interest, create new healthy habits and keep eating foods that are good for us when there is so many bad food choices and it is easier to watch a movie then to exercise? I’ve been in a holding pattern and not doing my exercise and eating too much sugar. I go through this when STRESS enters my life and people that I love try to manipulate me or a death in the family. I recently lost my father and cat of 28 years. So fighting off the depression has been a challenge. The POSITIVE is that I do continue to eat healthy foods mixed in with the bad ones and I keep up with deep breathing meditations for lots of great oxygen to circulate through my system.
I love food, especially veggies and fruits, so I create lots of tasty combinations and do the 6 small meals per day to keep me from grabbing a bag of chips or carton of ice cream. It helps that I snack on small pieces of 85% dark chocolate or Cacoa Nibs – YUM and Almonds are a good snack too.
I have been upping my Vitamin B Stress supplements and Vitamin D as well, I have found through the years that I need more of these just to keep myself from going down the road of doom and gloom.
The challenge is the exercise – which is one of the best things I have found for fighting off the depression. I am looking focusing on creating new habits to try and help me get motivated. I find that I have to up my ratio of happy tunes and movies or shows so that I don’t fall deeper into depression. I have found that using the MaxT3 surge system can be done in small increments of time so that you are on 20 seconds off 20 seconds and you can start with just 5 minutes a day. So currently my goal is to motivate myself and to not expect myself to do more than 5 minutes a day and if I do more great! Part of creating new goals and Healthy Habits is to know when you are expecting more from yourself than you can give. If I set a goal and fail at it, it only adds to the depression and makes me want to eat more Sugar. So I try not to set myself up to fail. But the big question still is what new way can I motivate myself to get off the couch and move my body when the stress/depression has me so tired that all I want to do is sleep. Sometimes a buddy system helps where I help each other because it’s not all about me. I think I will call my buddy and ask her to give me that verbal butt kick to get me moving.
Do You Have Any Suggestions? What are your ways to motivate yourself and create new habits I’d love to hear them! Love, Light and Happiness to you all have a great day/night!

Antioxidant Supplements Boost Brain Health And Help Prevent Alzheimer’s
Although occasional bouts of forgetfulness are jokingly referred to as “senior moments” and “old-timers disease,” the onset of dementia is no laughing matter for the five million Americans who suffer from Alzheimer’s. The disease is named after Dr. Alois Alzheimer, who discovered it in 1906 during the autopsy of a woman in her 50s who had experienced memory loss, language problems and erratic behavior. He discovered plaques in her brain and also tangled bundles of brain fiber that are the unique hallmarks of the disorder.
Alzheimer’s is a progressive, heart-breaking disease, causing mild memory loss in the early stages and eventually robbing individuals of the ability to carry on a conversation or even perform mundane tasks such as feeding themselves or brushing their teeth. One of the saddest aspects of Alzheimer’s is the emotional toll it takes on caregivers when they realize that their loved one no longer knows who they are. The disease is fatal and is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. The number of people with Alzheimer’s is expected to grow exponentially as the baby boomers enter their 60s and the number of Alzheimer’s and dementia patients is expected to reach 16 million by 2050.
The good news is that Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related problems are not inevitable aspects of growing older. Recent studies have offered significant hope for natural methods of preventing and treating the disease. Antioxidant supplements have emerged as viable weapons in the fight against Alzheimer’s, especially those containing curcumin.
Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric and researchers believe it may help reduce the plaque formation that is associated with Alzheimer’s. The fact that India produces nearly all of the world’s turmeric (and consumes 80 percent of it) probably explains why many inflammatory diseases, such as Alzheimer’s are not as prevalent in that country. In fact, India has one of the lowest Alzheimer’s rates in the world. People who are born in India and move to Western countries do not enjoy the same low rates of Alzheimer’s. Researchers believe the traditional Indian diet, which contains large amounts of turmeric, plays a significant role in disease prevention.
Pain and Brain Plus is a brain-boosting nutritional supplement that contains curcumin compounds that come together to form the most powerful antioxidant phytonutrients on the market. Pain and Brain Plus combines five nutrients that work together to support optimal brain and body function. In addition to supporting brain health, Pain and Brain Plus can also help the body overcome other issues such as poor digestion, fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis, sinusitis and chronic skin problems.
Although there are some risk factors for Alzheimer’s (such as age and family history) that cannot be controlled there are many proactive steps you can take to prevent it. A healthy lifestyle, an active social life and antioxidant nutritional supplements can help give you’re the support you need to stay vibrant and alert throughout your life.
Yoga is not only relaxing and a good exercise, but it can also help with disease.
Cancer is a devastating and life-changing diagnosis. Many cancer patients might have difficulty trying to maintain a quality of life similar to what they had before cancer. With added stress and worry about how much longer a patient has to live, discomfort from the side effects of medicine and appetite changes, cancer impacts all aspects of a patient’s life. Those with a more serious form of cancer, such as mesothelioma, might feel an especially great sense of urgency. Mesothelioma life expectancy can be just months after diagnosis. However, despite all these difficulties, the light exercise provided by yoga can help ease some of cancer’s discomfort and yield a better quality of life.
Exercise, in general, greatly benefits cancer patients and survivors. The American College of Sports Medicine has said that it is crucial for cancer patients to stay as active as possible before and during cancer treatment. Exercise builds strength…
